Re: Laptop brok on me

Hi! Thank you for responding. I got your answer on the NUTS & VOLTS magazine, unfortunately that was not the problem. But it did lead me another thought. It turn out be Window 7 causing the problem.

Hi! Joe

I downloaded from Nuts & volts.

I have a question on the serial monitor.

On some of your programs it seems to work find and on others it won't.

By that I mean, its scroll down slowly and other time its scrolls fast.

Is there way to control it?

Thanks

Hi! Joe

A little improvement on Lab3

The large spaces between Measure potentiometer angle rev 1.0 and you set 0 degree to: are gone.

But not getting 'Potentiometer voltage' yet
and the 'Angle = xx' is also missing.

Thanks

Hi!

I believe you may be right on, I am currently having big problems with libraries from Adafruit-Ardunio.

I have Ver 1.0.5-r2

I have run servos from your programs and mind with no problems.
But I'll do as you suggested.

Thanks

Interpreting error messages.

Is it possible to pigyback three programs on the Ardunio?

I would like to have three programs runing on the Ardunio one after the other or one at a time, in different order.
Is that possible?
